2017 Cobalt R5 Surf
V8-380 CE DP 380 HP
Forward Facing Drives
Pump out head
The touch of a button, Cobalt’s automated computer control surf system adjusts the Bi-Axis Surf Tabs to create optimum surf wake (left or right). No need to transfer ballast load between tanks.
In Performance Mode the surf tabs automatically deploy and adjust for a quick hole-shot through to running speed, easily getting the boat on plane with full ballast. No need to empty tanks.
Exceptional wake surfing doesn’t come at a compromise to Cobalt’s softer, drier, faster ride. With the versatility of full-range power trim the control and efficient operation remains. Drivers can customize the wake for surfing, wakeboarding or cruising. Plus, Volvo’s Forward Drive is uniquely engineered with two forward-facing counter-rotating props, which position the propellers to the front of the drive unit, well under the boat.
